The Queen’s Award for Enterprise has been awarded to Protexin for the second time.
Probiotics International Ltd (Protexin), which manufactures Bio-Kult and Lepicol, secured the accolade in recognition of the company’s outstanding achievement in the International Trade category.
Jonathan Sowler, Commercial Director, commented: “The Queen’s Award for Enterprise is a global stamp of approval and is well known across the world. To be recognised again that we have excelled in an industry that we are passionate about and dedicated to is fantastic.
“We have built strong international relationships across the globe with our trusted partners, who are committed to educating their markets about our products and appreciate our high quality manufacturing standards (MHRA, cGMP), as well as our commitment to robust scientific research. They are a huge part of this success.
“Business continues to grow in all markets at home and abroad and we will continue to work hard on bringing exciting new products to the markets we operate in as well as continuously demonstrating our commitment to scientific research. There are tremendous plans ahead for Protexin, with more exciting news to come.”
Since Protexin won the award for the first time in 2011, it has achieved substantial commercial growth, with export sales tripling and international trade now accounting for 60 per cent of Protexin’s business across over 80 countries.
Toby Lewis, Managing Director, added: “To be recognised for a second time in 2016 really is exceptional. It is testimony to the hard work of everyone within the company over the past five years who have helped to ensure our business continues to thrive.”
